Overview

The door closes and you are locked. You and your friends have 1 hour to escape from a mysterious house by solving puzzles and mysteries. The Longest Hour in Ypres is the very first 'real life escape game' in Belgium! A unique and intense experience, for groups of 3 to 6 players. Your age is not important , teamwork is the key to finish the game!

An exciting hour! A lot of fun, indeed. You get little to no explanation of how things work, so it is best to know how escape games work a little bit. But great fun, would recommend!

Our first time in this kind of activity. The Longest Hour passed so quickly. Very good puzzles to solve. An excellent way to pass time in Ieper. Very well organized from booking to completion. The whole family enjoyed the experience. Thank You

This was our first escape room experience and we absolutely loved it! It was really great to work together with our kids (10, 13, 14) to get through all puzzles. We had to divide the work according to our abilities and work against the clock....More

We did this with 3 kids (aged 8,9 & 10) and had a great time. Had no idea what to expect, but we had a blast. Failed to accomplish the task in the 60 minutes but had so much fun trying.

We participated in the game in a group of four friends on 23 April 2016. Since we were completely thrilled and enjoyed the game from the beginning to the end, we would definitely recommend this activity to anyone. An absolute must-do.

Hi Joseph, thanks for taking the time to review The Longest Hour. We're sorry you didn't like the game. Only one (and a half) of many puzzles in the game has to do with maths, all other riddles count on other skills of the players....More

Common sense and good teamwork is all you need for an exciting hour in Ieper. You really have to turn around every piece of furniture in all the rooms. This was our first escape game, but definitely not our last one.

Last year I did an escape game in Paphos, Cyprus but I loved this one even more because instead of just a room, there is a whole house to discover. Gives a lot more opportunities! The riddles and puzzles are original. Fantastic to do! Always...More
